Thanks to the other solutions here i thought i would try something out and it worked.

After i completed the game once (in order to unlock extreme) then i selected stage 10 and started to play just stage 10 but i played it on normal (easy would work too) using the Porsche. this makes getting to the final race pretty easy even though the Porsche has a lower top speed the AI is less so its not bad at all. Then when you start the final race pause the game, go to settings-->gameplay--> difficulty and select Extreme it will ask you if you want to restart, say yes. You will now only have to beat the final race on Extreme.

This is no walk in the park mind you but there are automatic catch up points for both you and your competitor so building a huge lead at the beginning means nothing.

There were three hard parts for me and it took me quite a few tries to get through it.

The Bridge: the best advice I can give you is that you don’t have to go full speed through here towards the end of the bridge when the traffic picks up I went down right slow so I could hit a car and not get wasted. It will say that your rival is getting away but don’t panic too much. If you keep him within 10 seconds of you it shouldn’t end the race and then once you are off the bridge you will be able to catch up to him easily until you get the first cut scene which is an auto catch up point.

The Train Tunnel: This is a pain. This is the reason you MUST use the Porsche as it has the best acceleration with you will need big time here. Hopefully you have a full Nos bottle and don’t be shy about using it since you are on a shortcut it will build back up quickly. Wait to use Nos until you are on the train tracks when you bounce over to the right hand side to avoid the train coming head on. This is the hard part. You have to gun it and stay off the walls enough to keep the train from running over you. And yes the train can go 150+ mph which is insane but that’s just how it is. This will take some practice but you have to keep off the walls as much as possible while gunning the accelerator. If you do hit the wall you must get off of it quickly and gun it with Nos to have any chance of making it then once you climb a hill you will be able to jump to the left and clear of that train but be careful because there is another one coming head on so you need to turn to the left again. Now you will go onto a platform and then lead to another set of tracks which will have a banked wall to the left. Drive on it as two trains will pass you head on and then when you see the light at the end of the tunnel use some Nos and be ready to turn to the left when you clear the tunnel so you can avoid the head on collision and jump back down to the road

The Port yard: This is the part with all the containers. I didn’t have much trouble here but you cannot go slow like the bridge section. I was behind by 6 seconds and failed once so you have to gun it. The best advice I have is that the sunlight will shine through the container gaps that you have to drive through so keep looking in the distance to line these up. I had very little trouble with this section but it can be tough.

After that you get an auto catch up point. Then just gun it and you should out accelerate him and once you make it to the building you did it!
Good Luck your gonna need it
